Mission Montessori Preschool and KindegartenProgressive Montessori Preschool and Kindegarten
Operating since 1998, we deliver our unique, progressive and well-balanced form of Montessori teaching to over 200 students per year.
Our program features traditional Montessori materials and activities alongside a progressive philosophy, music programs, cooperative learning and behavioural skills development, ABC’s/123’s and phonics/whole language programs such as the Little Reader’s Program and Fun Family Phonics.
We use a healthy Early Childhood Education approach. We pride ourselves on teaching with the “whole child” in mind and do not follow any hard and fast rules when it comes to educating children.
Our programming utilizes the Montessori materials and philosophy and we have fully stocked shelves with exciting practical life, sensorial, math, language, geography and science activities. We also have an Early Childhood approach offering dramatic play in the housekeeping center, fun and games, music experiences, arts and crafts, listening center and so much more!
Every child is different, every child is unique, and what applies for one may not be the same for another.
We go on field trips, have special events like a winter party, a year-end family day tea and performance that includes a cap and gown graduation ceremony and so much more.
We do monthly Culture Studies and learn about the world we live in from a global perspective.
We utilize a variety of teaching resources including many hands on materials, sign language, culture and language studies and exciting science and nature experiences.
Every child takes an active role in the maintenance of the classroom and helps with tidying, caring for plants, learning how to prepare foods, serving themselves at snack and keeping our playground and garden beautiful.
Communication is key
We pride ourselves on being open to daily communication with parents and ensuring we’re available to discuss childrens’ progress and answer questions whenever needed.
Student Records & Reports
We keep accurate records of what your child is doing at school and base the academics on individual skill and interest. We complete report cards twice yearly. We also have parent/teacher conferences to keep you updated on your child’s progress. We work hard to establish open communication with every parent. Setting goals for success at school is important and we take into account every child’s family expectations and wishes, as well as the child’s own interests and abilities.
